      That should be ok. You have to remember that with a centri-SC on cogs, you need a pretty large DV or BOV to allow enough CFM to escape or bypass in situations where the throttle plate is closed at high rpm. Un-like a turbo, the SC is mechanically tied to the engine RPM so it will continue to kick out the same CFM regardless of throttle position at a given RPM. That's the reason you see multiple BOV's on large charger equipped drag and street cars.

      I run a single 50mm tial Q BOV because I have stand alone but before that I was running a mad max DV and still could hear some compressor surge when I did high rpm shifts.

      Naysayer: does the tial unit seem adequate to you? I'm in the market for a bov but am unsure at this point which one to go with. The mondo valve is a nice piece but for over $300 it seems like money could be better spent elsewhere.
      Thanks

      Figured this would be a good thread to post up a nice start to a supercharger setup for a Vr6. I am selling a BRAND NEW Vortech V5 charger, Rheinland Technic Vr6 Bracket, and AMS tuned OBD2 Vr6 ECU.

      I struggled with the same dilemma, I like the size of the mondo but its pricy. I felt that since the tial was 50mm and had an optimized air flow design, it would fit the bill. They also sell a supercharger spring to use with the unit that allows very low vacuum opening. As far as function, it moves a lot of air, much more than my mad max valve did. I can see in my logs also that it releases quickly with little to no compressor surge during high rpm shifts and decelerations. I highly recommend it for cogged sc applications. In extreme cases, two may be needed.

      24v Corrado
      08-27-2014 12:11 PM #5711
      Anyone running this kit? I am curious if anyone is running that charger on a 2.8 24v vr6 and what kind of #'s can be expected. I contacted them on pricing for just the charger, brackets, and oil lines.as i already have 630cc injectors and a SRI. Just need IC and custom IC piping.

      Thanks!

      Also - just saw a few 24v vrs and looks like they mount the SC off the motor mount. Is there a way to mount a 24v SC setup like a mk3? I have my 24v in my Corrado so I am using those mounts instead.

      Anyone know if this V5 will work with the Rheinland bracket? I thought the typical brackets only fit V1, V2 and V3 chargers.
      I do ported/modified VR6 and 2.0 throttle bodies, mirror polish and port intake manifolds. PM me for details.

      It does, I purchased both from items directly from Rheinland.
